Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does carpet cleaning cost per square foot?

In some cases, a quote from a carpet cleaning company will depend on the square footage of the room. The lower end of these prices will be between $0.15 and $0.20 per square foot, and they may rise as high as $0.40-$0.50 per square foot. Factors raising the price include the carpet’s condition (are there stains?) and whether they have to clean carpeted stairs, which take longer.

To find out how much it will cost clean your carpets, request cost estimates from pros near you.

Which is better: steam cleaning or shampooing carpet?

Both steam cleaning and shampooing are tried-and-true methods for getting dirt and stains out of your carpets. The methods are different, however.

Steam cleaning will remove dirt from your carpets via hot water extraction, while shampooing requires scrubbing. If you’re in a time crunch, or if you just have one or two small spots that need to be removed, shampooing may be a better option, as it allows you to spot-clean small areas. Both steam cleaning and shampooing make your carpets wet, so you will need to allow for time for the carpets to dry. 

Contact carpet cleaning pros near you, and discuss the best options for your carpets.

Is it worth getting carpets professionally cleaned?

Purchasing a steam cleaner yourself may help to remove stubborn stains, but it simply won’t match the deep clean and efficiency that comes from hiring a professional carpet cleaner. Pros have powerful tools that can quickly remove even the most stubborn stains. 

If you’re selling your home, clean carpets can make your home more appealing to prospective buyers. And the expense is offset when you consider that you only need to get your carpets cleaned about once a year. Plus, professional carpet cleaning can extend the life of your carpets, saving you money in the long run.

How long does carpet cleaning take?

Given the way it can transform the carpet, cleaning happens remarkably quickly. You can expect an average size room to require about 20 minutes to thoroughly clean.

The job could take longer for several reasons. If the stains are widespread or particularly deep, the professional cleaner might need to spend more time removing them. They may also need to take time to move furniture out of the way.

How long does it take for carpet to dry after cleaning?

After a cleaning, you can expect your carpet to remain slightly damp for between six and 12 hours. You can expect the lower end of this figure if the air is dry, there’s plenty of air circulation or the temperature isn’t too low in your house. However, for humid environments or lower temperatures, your carpet could stay damp for longer.

What is dry carpet cleaning?

Dry carpet cleaning uses very little moisture to clean carpets. Instead, this method uses compound cleaning agents to loosen dirt that might be trapped in the carpet’s fibers. It’s an effective way to remove stains from soiled carpets.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a professional carpet cleaner or steam cleaner when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a carpet cleaner or steam cleaner, follow all guidelines surrounding social distancing, sanitize any involved surfaces, ventilate indoor areas where workers have been and use digital payment services instead of cash or a check. Before the pro arrives at your home, create a plan with them to make sure everyone in the household stays safe.

Do professional carpet cleaners or steam cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

While cleaning services such as professional carpet cleaning or steam cleaning are not typically done remotely, many businesses and professionals are making changes to accommodate the CDC's social distancing guidelines. If you come across a carpet cleaner’s profile and it states they’re offering remote services, contact the cleaner to see what those services include. 

Does a professional carpet cleaner or steam cleaner need to enter my home?

Because the majority of carpet cleaning and steam cleaning jobs take place in someone’s home, it’s likely that a professional carpet cleaner would need to enter your home.

When you contact carpet cleaners near you, ask if they will do a video call in place of a standard consultation. Send photos and other materials digitally. Practice safe social distancing at all times, and follow both local and CDC guidelines.

How can I find out if a professional carpet cleaner is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Local and federal governments are currently in the process of defining essential services guidelines, and it’s best to read them to see whether professional carpet cleaning or steam cleaning is considered essential. A good place to start is with your city or state’s government website.

The CISA's Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage identifies 16 critical infrastructure sectors on a federal level. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

I had Ultimate Floor Care come to my home to clean 4 bedrooms. The owner/tech was on time, pleasant and fast. He did a great job and in a little over an hour my carpets looked like new. It was amazing. I didn't get that result with the last carpet cleaner I had. The price was right and now I know I don't have to look up carpet cleaners in the future when I need one.

JJ was awesome! Previous owners said they had the carpets cleaned before we moved in and I knew that to be not true. JJ came in this morning and the carpets look so clean, and beautiful. I also asked him to give me a bid on my travertine. I will and you should give him a try. Thank JJ!!!!! A++++++++

He made a mediocre (at best) effort to clean the stains from the carpet. Seemed uninterested in doing a great job. In and out, check in hand.

I found Daniel on Thumbtack and hired him to clean my elderly neighbor's carpets. They had not been cleaned in several years and were covered in stains, dirt and grime. The carpet was almost black in many areas. Daniel did a fantastic job. It looks amazing. My neighbor is elated. I will be spreading the word about the great job he did and will be using him myself in the future.

I couldn't be more pleased. My carpet looks new and old stains are gone. Chris had to make a second trip back to clean my recliner as he was missing a piece of equipment on his initial visit. Chris dealt with this inconvenience with professionalism. All in all a good experience and I would recommend Chris' Quick Dry to anyone needing carpet cleaned. Bonnie Hall

Did a really good job on some old gross carpet. Hope the landlord will appreciate the cleaning. He was on time as well which I appreciate not having to wait longer than needed.

I could not be more pleased. I have a large wool area rug that my puppy had several accidents on. I did not want the rug cleaned in my home as I have furniture on it and felt it would be best cleaned outside the home. I live in Old Town Scottsdale, Chris picked up the rug (most carpet cleaners will not provide that service) and he not only got the spots out but all the urine odor as well. He delivered the rug back to us. It looks like a new rug. Chris worked with me on the dates I had available for both the pick up and delivery. He was kind and very accommodating. He also had one of the best prices of all the carpet services I contacted. I would recommend him to anyone needing carpet cleaning and I will be using his service again. You will be happy with the work he does.

Trent was amazing and did a super job cleaning the carpets in both my apartment and new house. Katie in their office was extremely responsive, and flexible - fitting in my last minute cleaning right before my movers were due to arrive. Fantastic all the way around, can’t recommend them enough!
